Selma Blair "Does NOT Take MS For Granted"

If you recall, Selma Blair shocked us all when she announced that she was diagnosed with MS in August 2018, and revealed her diagnosis publicly two months later.

In October, Selma Blair gave fans an update on her health revealing that she is undergoing “aggressive” chemotherapy and stem cell transplant to help alleviate some of the pain and ailments from her diagnosis. Continue on…

I do not take this for granted.

A post shared by Selma Blair (@selmablair) on

CelebNHealth247.com reports that Selma revealed that “the disease modifiers didn’t work for me at the time, and I was really declining more rapidly than I found acceptable,” said during a panel discussion the Time 100 Health Summit.

Now, one year and three months later, Selma Blair took to social media to speak on her chemotherapy and how her hair fell out from the aggressive treatments to battle her multiple sclerosis.

The 47-year-old actress explains in an open letter to her fans, friends and whoever reads her posts.

The “Cruel Intentions” star writes:

For those few interested at an in-depth look at hair growth, post-chemotherapy for #hsct. I cut my hair short to transition myself and my son for impending baldness. Easy. Baldness came. I didn’t shave head to that end. Of course, it fell out. Shiny. Pale dome. Nice enough. It took two months to begin regrowth And it came in fine and pale and very sparse. I shaved it. It looked too sad. For me. I let it grow back. It was patchy in color and I felt like dying it brown. Ridiculous! I really only succeeded in dying my scalp.

She adds:

After a week, I buzzed shorter with clippers and a few weeks later, here we are ?. A thinnish, patchy charcoal head. I will see how a pixie grows in. Or I will buzz again. It seems to be too much to have long hair again. So I will leave it short and grey, something I have never before wanted to do. I equated it with giving up. And maybe giving up long, brown hair, complete with time-consuming and expensive highlights and lowlights isn’t necessarily a give up. Give in. Embrace. Sure. I’ll try it. Unless…some fancy pants company with a thick checkbook wants to entice me out of dye retirement. Then I will sing about the glories of processed hair! I certainly will. So, until that wished-for day, enjoy the head ? #buzzed #saltandpepperhair #showingmyroots #thecomeback
